Alana Futcher serves as Chancey Charm’s Charlottesville Wedding Planner and Coordinator. With several years of event planning experience under Coastal Occasions, the Reservoir in Richmond and now over a year with Chancey Charm, Alana has made a name for herself in the special events community. She provides unmatched customer service and showcases her design and planning talents on a daily basis. Alana’s work has recently been featured on top wedding blogs, such as Ruffled, Wedding Chicks, WeddingLovely, Borrowed & Blue and Tidewater and Tulle. Her expert planning advice has been featured multiple times on Brides and Bridal Guide, and she’s also listed as a trusted, preferred planner at some of Richmond and Charlottesville’s top wedding venues.
Raised in Virginia, Alana is a proud graduate of Virginia Tech with a B.A. in Public Relations and Communications. Alana has built an impressive network of wedding vendors and venues for her clients. She especially loves working with Amy Nicole Photography, The Proper Petal, Pearls and Nathaniel’s Unique Events. Alana also adores Early Mountain, Clifton Inn, Pippin Hill Farm and Trump Winery. Filled with elegant barns and grand estates, Charlottesville has an incredible variety of luxury venues to choose from. We absolutely love this beautiful area and all of the talented vendors that serve it. Every wedding in Charlottesville is truly a treat, transporting guests to an unforgettable romantic escape and celebration.
In her spare time, Alana plays a huge role in organizing her local community’s Relay for Life, a non-profit close to her heart. Watching football (Go Steelers and Hokies!), tackling a tough hike and playing with her sweet pup Bentley are also high on her list.
Weddings are one of the happiest days of a person’s life. As a little girl, you grow up dreaming about your wedding day and all the little details: the yummy food, silly dancing, fancy dresses, and everything in between! I love being able to see my client’s dreams turn into a reality. The reception is such a wonderful time, where family and friends are able to genuinely experience the love and happiness the couple has, and it is the most rewarding part of the job. It is truly a blessing to be able to share their special day with them. – Alana
